Emma Watson Won’t Take A Selfie With Fans… But There’s A Catch

Thanks for the idea!

Emma Watson has just been revealed as Vanity Fair‘s latest cover star and we’re seeing her like NEVER before! 

The Beauty and the Beast star went all high-fash in a ~gorg~ photoshoot, where she even posed topless (well, braless) and left us speechless…

Give us a sec while we pick our jaws up off the ground. DAYUM.

Emma opened up to the mag about fame and revealed exactly why, like Justin Bieber before her, she put a ban on taking selfies with fans.

“If someone takes a photograph of me and posts it, within two seconds they’ve created a marker of exactly where I am within 10 meters,” she explained. “They can see what I’m wearing and who I’m with. I just can’t give that tracking data.”

Fair enough. Especially considering there are people who take their obsession with her a little too far (“I have met fans that have my face tattooed on their body”). But even though you won’t get a selfie, you will get something even better!

“I’ll say, ‘I will sit here and answer every single Harry Potter fandom question you have but I just can’t do a picture,'” Emma added. “I have to carefully pick and choose my moment to interact.”

OH. EM. GEE. Just imagine!!! And turns out she will actually break her rule on one condition: small children.

“When am I a celebrity sighting versus when am I going to make someone’s freakin’ week? Children I don’t say no to, for example,” she said.

Got a younger sibling? Better make sure they NEVER leave your side next time Emma’s Down Under! 😉
